Let me start off by saying that I was not a guest at Kon-Tiki - thankfully. I had a 3 night stay 1 mile south at Amara Cay Resort - review to come. We were visiting Islamorada for a destination wedding on April 23rd. The parents of the bride booked a 3 bedroom villa in which her Aunt and Uncle...

To the point, Nancy was quite rude and has a personal issue with her accent. To many issues with the management to list. I will never stay here again!! The owners should really do something about them!!

We've been here before and will stay here again whenever we come to Islamorada. This trip, we were in unit #15, which has a huge bedroom with two queen sized beds, a living/dining room, and a full kitchen complete with microwave and coffee machine as well as a full sized refrigerator and stove and everything you need to cook and...

This was visit number two with a group of Bud's looking for a long weekend of fishing and getting our fun on! Kon Tiki has well kept tropical grounds, and is a great low key, non touristy, no frills stay. If your looking for a Hilton, this is not your destination. If your looking for a comfortable stay while your...

The resort is right on the water and so the view from just outside our room was perfect. Lots of nice areas for sitting outside with shaded areas, hammocks and a heated pool. The room was clean although nothing fancy but who would want to stay inside with scenery like that on your doorstep. The staff were very friendly and...

The room was clean. It doesn't state that you have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the room. The resort was nice, a lot of fishermen and it seemed as if everyone knew each other. We did not try the pool but it looked nice. It was very reasonable compared to other resorts on Islamorada.

We were staying at Margaritaville Resort in Hollywood. We decided to drive down for the day and take in the sites of the Keys. We loved it and decided to stay one night. I was already paying for a night at a resort at $350 night and didn't want to pay another $350 to say in the keys. I really...

Pretty much what we expected. Several options on room sizes available, but all we needed was a room while traveling through. We got the smallest one they had, which had a bath, bed, TV, small fridge, etc. Heated pool was nice. Room was reasonably clean. Boat ramp on property so would be a great place if you take your boat...

So very disappointed, though the people who managed or owned this resort were extremely friendly, the cottages were not clean,not updated,many insects, including roaches..grand daddy size. Slept with lights on every night. We had 2 cottages..my little grandchildren had more bug bites than I've seen on a small body. The "water view" is a dirty, pond..with everything including jellyfish, and...

We do appreciate the positive comment made about our friendly staff and we thank you for that. However, I am saddened that someone would actually spend four days in our resort and not address this type of an issue with our office or maintenance staff. If this had really occurred and had it been reported to us, it most certainly...

This place is beautiful. Tucked away amidst palms and the sea, an enchanting little escape. We went for a weekend wedding and everyone here was extremely helpful and attentive. The landscape is tropical, there are hammocks, a dock and a sandy beachfront. Each room is different depending on what you are looking for. They offer a great variety of room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ever been somewhere and feel there's something very important you have to do? Maybe it's fishing or scuba diving or nothing at all. The subtropical ambiance of the Kon Tiki Resort is that kind of place. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating all year round. You'll be in paradise while soaking up the sun next to our heated freshwater pool or on the sandy beach of our private lagoon. ... more   less
